Bush Rangers & Benalla

Benalla seemed like a great little stop over on the way from Bright to Melbourne and we weren't disappointed.  Benalla is widely regarded as the 'Home of Ned Kelly'  so we had to go and visit the museum which also happens to be the information centre.  We just wouldn't be Kelly's if we didn't!  We also visited nearby Glenrowan where you can see the 'Big Ned Kelly'.

We were really lucky to be in town the weekend of the "Benalla Festival" with fireworks and live music on Saturday night.  The kids loved it and we had a blast there.   I got to play with some night shots (always a favorite for me) and a few different perspectives.

A different focal point made this image interesting I thought

Bright Shop Owner

We stayed 5 days at Bright, a gorgeous place with heaps of character.  My fave thing was this sign for Husband Parking.  I had a joke around with the 'lucky' husbands who were parked at the time I walked past.  "Work it boys!"  I love that they actually use the chair (and yep they were still sitting there when we had finished browsing with wives inside happily shopping).  Fantastic!
